Indian Army aviation became an independent corps of the Army in 1986. Today, Army Aviation has the largest number of helicopters amongst the three services. Yet, the expansion of this vital corps has been slow, mainly on account of opposition from the Indian Air force (IAF). In the tactical arena, army formations and units require intimate support from the air. This can be best provided by Army Aviation. Unfortunately, on account of “turf” considerations, the logical growth of Army Aviation has been hamstrung. The result is missed opportunities in battle.

Army Aviation has braved the neglect of years and has performed creditably with its meagre resources in multi-terrain and operational conditions, bet needs to rapidly modernise. This volume is aimed on various aspects of Army Aviation so that this important component of the army becomes a force multiplier par excellence and be an important battle winning factor in future wars and conflicts.
